Creative Learning Center Studios Commercial Spot

 

This year I began teaching kids in Detroit’s inner city how to used creativity and vlogging to express themselves. I am beyond excited and amazed by this journey and their progress. They produced every shot in this commercial.  These are my artist, dreamers and entrepreneurs and I am very proud of them.

LOVE AND SHIPWRECKS

“My scars are testament to the love I felt and if the scar is deep so was the love.” This is one of my favorite letters of all time. I call it, “LOVE AND SHIPWRECKS” This is a beautiful piece penned by an unknown author about love and overcoming loss. Please enjoy and share it with others who may need to hear these beautiful words. –Kirk Noland

The forgotten genius of Richard Jeni

This has always been one of my favorite comedians. I worked with Richard many times in Vegas and Atlantic City. He was one of the most powerful and electrifying comedians I have ever had the privilege of working with. Rich was always the consummate professional. One time in Vegas I watched him spend two hours making sure the sound and lights were perfect for the show. No one I have ever met to this day has ever paid that close attention to the details of their show.  He gave me the greatest advice I have ever received from a comedian. That advise has made me the storyteller I am today.  I will never forget it and I will never forget him.  When I heard the news that he had taken his own life it hit me hard.  While we had worked together many times I had never become close friends with Richard. There was an aloofness about him that I now recognize in my own self these days. Even though we never became close. Richard Jeni had an influence on me like no other comedian ever has.  I miss that little genius from Bensonhurst who has inspired so many comedians of my era. Richard Jeni was one of the most brilliantly underrated comedians of his time.  I hope over time more young comedian will discover this incredible talent and realize what a true master of the craft Richard Jeni was.  Rich was truly one of kind and there will never be another like him.
